characteristics of physical activity in this population may be improved through the integration of objective measurement to complement the self-reported measures currently in use. Participation in MVPA is a strong predictor of health-related quality of life, 16 chronic disease burden, 37 and premature mortality

associated with objective measurement of physical activity (using accelerometers) among individuals with a lower-limb amputation who are using a prosthesis. We hypothesized that self-report measures assessing functional mobility, balance confidence, and prosthetic use would each independently help to explain

). In addition, we had no objective measurement of the follicular phase by hormonal observations and cannot exclude that the variation in individual responses may be due to intraindividual differences in hormonal levels. We also did not control the physical activity status of the participants. Future
